Contact No 59 Skin and Beauty Ltd if you're looking for a solution to eliminate excessive sweating by effectively, temporarily blocking the connection between the nerves and sweat glands.

What is Hyperhydrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which a person sweats excessively. The sweating may affect the whole of your body, or it may only affect certain areas including armpits, hands & feet. For those that suffer with this it can have a big impact on their lives causing embarrassment, frustration and stress.


Sweating cools you down and reduces your internal body temperature. A rise in internal body temperature can lead to our organs overheating, fatigue, heat exhaustion and heat stroke, so sweating is a natural and healthy part of life! 


If you're exercising, in a hot climate, or feeling nervous, sweating is completely normal. Excessive sweating is when you sweat even though your body doesn't need to be cooled down. If you suffer from excessive sweating, you probably already know about it. It can be general sweating or it can be localised to your palms, your feet, or your underarms etc.  


The clinical term for excessive sweating is 'hyperhidrosis'. It's a very common condition, and many go undiagnosed, but there are many ways to help combat excessive sweat! 

If your sweating makes you feel uncomfortable, causes you embarrassment, anxiety or stress, we're here to help you combat it. 

Primary Hyperhydrosis

Primary Hyperhidrosis is widely acknowledged to be the most common form of hyperhidrosis. It's important to first determine which type of hyperhidrosis you have in order to find the correct remedy.


Secondary Hyperhydrosis

This typically occurs in relation to an underlying medical problem or as a side effect of taking prescribed medicines. That’s why it’s called secondary - it’s secondary to something else. Unlike with primary hyperhidrosis, people with secondary hyperhidrosis experience sweating on larger or other areas of the body. 


How does the Iontophoresis Machine work?

Our Iontophoresis machine treats excessive sweating by effectively temporarily blocking the connection between the nerves and the sweat glands.


It requires you to immerse your hands or feet in a shallow pan of tap water. As you do this, a medical device sends a low-voltage current through the water leaving the electric current shutting down the treated sweat glands temporarily.


Most people need about 6 to 10 treatments to shut down the sweat glands. To get improvement, you may need two treatments per week. A treatment session usually takes 20 to 40 minutes.


Once you see results, you can repeat the treatment as needed to maintain results. This can range from once a week to once a month.


Side effects


Some people develop the following symptoms: 

  • Dry skin

  • Irritated skin

If you experience any side effects, tell your dermatologist.

Making some changes often eliminates these side effects.
